Enabling authentication will hopefully discourage drive-bys. For the weekend, here are a couple thoughtful articles: “A note on the future: Deliberately disabling children”

Pro-aborts suppress pro-life free speech

Two events this week spotlighted the truth: People calling themselves “pro-choice” aren’t that at all. They are pro-abortion. They are anti-choice. They do all they can to suppress the free speech of pro-lifers. At a March 27 rally sponsored by liberal feminists in Washington, D.C., to promote the reintroduction of the Equal Rights Amendment, one […]

The inconvenient truth about Terri Schiavo and euthanasia

Many comments to my post yesterday, column today The most obvious thread between abortion support and euthanasia support is promotion of death. The underlying thread is selfishness, i.e., promotion of convenience. Over 90% of abortions are for convenience, either as primary or secondary birth control. Likewise, every euthanasia supporter I read on this blog supports […]

Death Angel vs. Terri Schiavo

This Saturday, March 31, will mark the second anniversary of the death by starvation and dehydration of Terri Schiavo. Too bad she wasn’t a convicted murderer. She’d still be going through the appeals process. Yes, had Terri been a convicted murderer, MSM would certainly have taken up her cause as well, like it did the […]

Nurse

Last night Rae linked to this short film in the comments section of one of my posts with a little zinger, “Hey Jill, here’s a video that might appeal to you. I bet if you were still a nurse and knew you could get away with this you’d do it in a heartbeat.” Well, I […]

One of the tricky parts about medical abortion is that these drugs work all the way through a pregnancy, although they become less effective and the rate of complication rises in the course of pregnancy. So it is not recommended to have a second-trimester medical abortion without the supervision of a doctor. It’s not as if someone couldn’t try. But it is certainly a risk. It’s not happening, but theoretically it could.

There’s also a deeper question here. If you know there is a risk someone can misuse a drug, what do you do about it? One of the things that people who advocate for medical abortions say is that there are drugs like Tylenol on the shelves of every pharmacy that anyone could buy and overdose on and kill themselves. You can buy bleach. It doesn’t mean we make those substances unavailable.

What do you do with the possibility that women might misuse these drugs? Do you take it away from them? Or do you trust them?

~ New York Times writer Emily Bazelon, responding to the question, “Could the women who are requesting abortion drugs from Women on Web lie about how far along in their pregnancies they are?”, as quoted in “Behind the Cover Story: Emily Bazelon on Medical Abortion Through the Mail,” The 6th Floor, September 1
